Actor George Takei will publicly celebrate his union to husband BRAD ALTMAN with a history-making TV moment - as the first gay couple to appear on hit U.S. show THE NEWLYWED GAME.
The couple has been together for more than two decades and is set to appear in a special celebrity episode of the game show - which pits newlyweds against each other with a series of intimate questions.
Former Star Trek star Takei was finally able to marry Altman last September (09), two months before a decision by the California Supreme Court briefly legalising gay marriage in the state was overruled.
The couple's marriage remains legal - and they are eager to display their deep connection to the public when the show airs next month (Oct09).
Altman tells the New York Daily News, "George and I are thrilled. It's pretty historic for us. It's going to be a great experience for both of us to see how well we really know each other after 22 years together."
